TWENTY-THREE people attended the 90-target English sporting clay target event at the Derwent Valley Field and Game Club on September 18. The weather on the day was excellent which made the day very enjoyable.
Michael Spaulding from the Northern Midlands Club (Longford) achieved a score of 84/90 which was the AA winning result followed by Ken Triffitt in A Grade from the same club with a 78/90. Barry Bone from New Norfolk managed to get away from the local bowls club long enough to achieve a 71/90 which won B Grade and young Angus Pitt from Ouse managed a score of 53/90 to take out the C Grade.
Clay target events are similar to playing golf in that some days a good result can result and on others the reverse however it is a very addictive sport and competitors always look for a better result "next time".
